This unique culinary experience that bridges past and present is the result of an eagerness to embrace new ideas and a profound respect for tradition. Sushi Roku’s bold and diverse menu also offers an array of hot and cold specialty appetizers and an extensive selection of exotic entrées.

I’d rather not say how I truly feel because afterwards everybody will want to go there and I won’t be able to get a table. So I’m not going to say I think this is the best sushi place in the world, and that the food and ambiance and staff are amazing. Why would I do that to myself?
Maga!

LOVE, love, love Sushi Roku in Newport Beach. The Manager, Chris Han & his Team ALWAYS make certain both family & business occasions are memorable. The menu items are varied & always fresh & delicious BUT, I suggest you allow your sushi chef to surprise you.

Overall the sushi is mediocre. Most of the rolls and sashimi slices were served very warm. The rice can be warm but the actual fish itself appeared to have not been freshly pulled from a refrigerated environment. There’s something about warm sushi that doesn’t sit well with my mouth. Overall the previous reviews critiquing the sushi are spot on. Liquor store sushi is its closest competitor.

Go to Delsushi at UCI.

They don’t have a vegetarian or vegan menu like they used to, so there aren’t any tofu or veg rolls items listed. You have to ask.

Big huge waste of time and money. The food was like overpriced Pei Wei; sushi mediocre, sashimi average, rolls dry. The $49 ribeye might as well have been from Pavillions. Waiter was inattentive. We had two tweens with us, among many other forgotten promises never returned with forks so they could even eat. We didn’t have wine and only ordered a total of 3 cocktails yet our bill before gratuity was $340!! We had a few leftovers but hardly over ordered. We will never go back.

Took a really long time to get a waiter to come by our table. Food quality is mediocre and over priced. Tuna used on sushi is not sashimi grade, chicken is dry as paper.

The restaurant does a great job at creating physical distancing and also had fun Halloween decorations. Our server was very friendly and attentive and the food was delicious. I could live on the scrumptious Brussel sprout chips. The sushi was super fresh as well. I love this place.

This is a very high end and expensive sushi restaurant but well worth it if you can afford it. We went for a special occasion and ended up seated next to a famous Angels baseball player. Food is fantastic and mixed drinks were very good too.

Can say enough good things about our experience on a Thursday night in early October at Sushi Roku! We sat outside, which was beautiful in the early evening, and chose to order multiple appetizers and small plates rather than entrees. We got the wagyu beef gyoza, ribeye-wrapped asparagus, Chilean sea bass skewer, grilled lamb chops, miso soup, avocado-asparagus roll, and the molten chocolate cake at the end. Every single item was terrific, as was the attentive service from Taylor. The only minor quibble is that I felt the skewer was overpriced for a small amount of sea bass, but really, the taste of everything was terrific. Highly recommended.
